Thanks to all of those who contacted me about this these last few weeks! I guess the information is now more or less official, although the concert is not yet listed on the ECM Records Web site: Keith Jarrett will play a solo concert at the Philharmonie in Berlin on October 12, 2009. I don’t know when or where the tickets will go on sale, but they might be available at some point from the Berliner Philharmoniker Web site. More about this later, hopefully.
Thanks to Ricky Linn for pointing out to me that more than 40 Keith Jarrett albums are available from eMusic. For more information about eMusic, check out their “eMusic Story” page or Wikipedia. Basically, eMusic is a legal “online music store that operates by subscription”. The tracks are available as DRM-free MP3 files.
As announced by KeithJarrett.it and confirmed by Keith Jarrett’s manager, the November 20, 2009 concert at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center is not a solo concert, but a trio concert. The confusion comes from the fact that ECM Records is currently listing the concert under “Keith Jarrett” and not under “Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette”.
